Working It Out
Bally's would drive a claustrophobe mad. The lifting area features top-of-the-line equipment, but the floor space is so limited there's barely room to use it. Similarly, the cardio area has spectacular equipment wall to wall--but is so confined that just two or three people exercising thickens the air. Walls surround the track on the second floor, heightening the confinement. A four-lane pool is a plus. The free week comes with frequent high-pressure sales pitches.
